Parent fees for regulated child care will be reduced in Saskatchewan this fall.
This is the second fee reduction announced this year, as part of around $1.1 billion being invested in childcare in Saskatchewan.
The fees will be lowered by an average of 70 percent on September 1, compared to March 2021 levels.
“With this latest fee reduction, we are one step closer to our goal of $10-a-day child care by 2025 to 2026,” said Weyburn-Big Muddy MLA and Education Minister, Dustin Duncan in a release. “Fee reductions for regulated child care spaces is the latest way our government is putting more money back in the pockets of families across the province.”
There are around 16,000 regulated child care spaces for children under the age of six in Saskatchewan.
